The 14thth Annual Somerville Open Studios will be held on the weekend of May 5th and 6th. This is an event where hundreds of artists have the opportunity to sell there wares in over a hundred homes and studios throughout Somerville. The event runs from Noon to 6PM on Saturday and Sunday, while select venues will be open from 6PM to 9PM on the 4th (Friday).
As has been the case for the last seven years, artists will be able to choose one of their pieces to be displayed in the Artist’s Choice show at the Somerville Museum. New events this year include Beyond the Pattern – a fashion and wearable art show, an Open Cinema Festival and Spoken Word on the SOS Trolleys – 15 performers spread across six hours.

In addition, anyone who buys an unframed piece of art during the Open Studios will get a 30% discount if they have it framed at A Street Frames.
